RePolyTex to Produce Plastic Plywood Product From Shredded e-Plastics

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): RePolyTex announced its plans to begin test production at its Madison, N.C. facility in the next few weeks. The plant will use plastics recovered from electronics as feedstock to generate construction materials. The shredded e-plastics will be converted to ‘plastic plywood’ project.

The Synergy Electronics Recycling, which operates an electronics processing plant adjacent to the RePolyTex facility, is a partner of the project. The shredded e-plastics recovered from electronic devices including printers and fax machines will be accepted by the new facility. As per rough estimates, the facility will accept up to 400,000 pounds of common resins every month. The production capacity of the plant is estimated at around 100,000 RePolyPly sheets per year.

The accepted materials will undergo a cleaning process. The plastics which are free of contaminants will be blended together into specific formulations. The blend then goes through a fusion encapsulation process and finally into molds of different designs to produce products that suit various construction applications.

TwoRivers ITAD Solutions, with its facility located in Lithonia, Ga., is an additional investor in the project.
